Due to the popularity of the Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) Pilot Program, VA has experienced record-breaking enrollment numbers for fiscal year 2024. As of November 17, 2023, the VET TEC program’s annual funding cap of $45 million is nearing exhaustion, meaning that VA will soon be unable to fund any new VET TEC students. Students currently enrolled will continue training uninterrupted, and Veteran and training provider applications will continue to be accepted. However, to ensure that Veterans are not negatively impacted, VA will be requesting that all VET TEC Training Providers temporarily discontinue submitting new VET TEC enrollments by close of business November 17, while VA confirms how much funding remains available. If additional funding is available, VA will provide guidance on how additional enrollments can be submitted. VA anticipates completing their review by early December 2023. The VET TEC Pilot ends on April 1, 2024, but VA has testified to Congress in support of pending legislation to make the program permanent. Veterans with questions regarding their VET TEC eligibility or the VET TEC program should email the VET TEC team at VETTEC.VBABUF@va.gov. For other questions about their GI Bill® education benefits, Veterans should call the Education Call Center at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551).
